thank you for being with us. >> greta: tonight, the head of the central intelligence agency, david petraeus, made himself blackmail material. what did the white house know? and when can they know it? petraeus resigned after admitting to cheating on his wife. raising more questions than answers. why now? days before he was set to testify about four dead americans in libya. >> the terror attack, benghazi, has put a lot of pressure on this white house. and a lot of pressure on senior intelligence officials, like general david petraeus. thls a complete surprise, though. >> the timing is just too perfect for the obama administration. just as the administration claimed that there was purely coincidence that our benghazi conflict attack was on the anniversary of september 11. now it's purely coincidence that this extra-marital affair surfaces right after the election -- want before, but right after, but before the intelligence chief goes to capitol hill to get grilled. >> we had heard he may have resigned for personal reasons. one of those reasons was the possibility of an extra-marital a
were very strategic in their use of their resources. and they had a lot -- he raised about a billion dollars. they were very strategic. obama's campaign can buy a television advertisement at the lowest rates possible. television stations, local television stations selling the ads want to make as much money as possible. they do not have to offer low rates to the super pac's. they can charge the super pac's as much as the market will bear. because of the saturation, they in fact did. many of the super pac's were paying 10 or 15 times more for 30 seconds and the obama campaign was. so i do not want to say that -- it would be satisfying to say money did not have any eject, so despite the billions that were poured in and people trying to manipulate elections -- the citizens united campaign, there was an employer who stapled a sample ballot to workers' paychecks. to get an idea of how he wanted them to vote. there were a lot of employers who did that. mitt romney encouraged employers to do that. in terms of citizens united, first of all going back to the earlier case, i will never agree wi
